A cafe inspired by the image of Vladimir Putin has opened in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk.
The President Cafe has photos, paintings and even a cardboard cutout of the Russian leader in its dining area, while western leaders are placed in what the cafe calls the “NATO room,” otherwise known as the bathroom.
Barack Obama’s face is featured on the toilet paper while marked up photos of Angela Merkel and David Cameron hang on the walls.
Cafe co-owner Svetlana Lautman told Radio Free Europe that she studied in the U.S. and doesn’t have bad feelings towards the country, but styled her cafe with business in mind.
“In any case, this is just catering to the things that people are used to,” she said.
Although Putin’s third term as president is slated to end in 2018, Lautman said she doesn’t think her cafe will become irrelevant anytime soon.
“For some reason, I’m sure that the most significant politician in the world will hold the post he has for quite a while.”
